Rob’s comment on this recent photo of the post office building on 25th Street got me to finish digging into rumors that the parcel had been bought by developer Josh Bilder.
The city site says that the parcel was sold in April 2015 to East End Station, LLC, for $800,000. East End Station, LLC was formed in April 2015.
When I first heard rumor of the sale a little while back, I called Bilder to see if he would confirm a connection to the purchase. He said that he didn’t want to talk about it.
Digging around online, a few connections to Bilder come to light:
- The agent for East End Station, LLC (who owns the post office and parking lot) is Jennifer Mullen, who has previously represented Bilder in regard to the East End Theater project.
- East End Station’s principal office is listed as 3209 GROVE AVENUE, which belongs to Emily Sterling (Josh Bilder’s mother, who is his business partner).
